great show to start a great tour. the matrix sound fidelity is awesome.

Not the best sound, but very passable and the best we currently have. One hot show- right out of the gate for an E.C. Spring Tour it was something special- then and now. LL was a great first set tune and gets a heroines return. LIG (always looking for the big wave with this tune) is off the hook. A 1%'er. A taut, jazzy late Brent PITB gets a special nod as well. The crowd, the tunes and the boys were all mighty alright this night.

25 years ago today, 50 years of great musical memories. This recording is absolutely fantastic. Overall this is a stellar show for opening night of one of the last, great tours. Very mellow gig but extremely well played. I've listened to parts of this gig through the years, but never the whole show. Glad I did this all the way through as every note seemed as if it mattered and the whole band was on the same page musically. Been listening to a ton of 68 and early 70s lately, but this certainly made the transition into late era shows very easy. Viva la Dead from the badlands of New Mexico. Cheers.

Subject: another song break out
cap centre was my home town dead show base ,and i loved it ,it seamed that the band loved it there too they would always break out the long awaited songs and new songs at the cap centre. i was very blessed to see some of the best shows they did from 1985 to 1995 .i don't know if cap centre was the first show on the east coast or not. but this loose lucy is so high energy and the next year the rubin and cherise was a nice surprise along with the casey jones at rfk. i really do miss those times and wished they could clone garcia somehow

I often think this is the best year for the Dead. At least 89' up till Brent died. Am I nuts? I'm sure if any remaining member were to really think about it they'd have to say this time in their career had to have been exemplary. Everything is so well orchestrated, tight, sophisticated and energetic. This show is really just one example. It seems like they're still exploring new sounds while amazingly still dipping into the same pool of great material.

I recently listened to a decent show from 94' and really heard just how tight everyone was (except Jerry) which at first made me think how much they all stepped up to the plate. However, while listening to this it's clear that Jerry just had a way of overshadowing the best of bands. Still, his voice is not perfect here nor had it been for sometime and Brent and Bobby (especially Brent) really come to the rescue at times such as in UJB.

It's strange when listening to the Dead (even now) that I will give a pass for mistakes and sounding like old men. Who else would I ever do that with? Dylan? Honestly I stopped listening to him years ago and only incidentally. There is just so much more to this music than we get out of most anything I can think. Moreover, it is because of the risk taking and sheer volume of work that we have been given such a gift and I'll take that over any slick manufactured Cheese Whiz any day. Mistakes and all.

Thank you Kevin for another great recording. The sources may not be top notch, but a great matrix from what's available. The mix is outstanding for this show.

OK let me gush once more. For all the attention Loose Lucy got, I still say (23 years later) it was the least interesting part of the show. Granted I was never very caught up in novelty concerning set lists and first times, etc. so take it as you will, but still it says more about the quality of the show. A great balance of fun tunes and more weighty music. LIG! Crazy Fingers S2 opener!- Playin-UJ-Playin-Drumz/Space Black Peter... No one who ventures to give this an honest listen would ever dismiss the Dead as simply "Jam Band Music". This is serious music that was on fire while quite reminiscent and on par with the somewhat recent Hampton shows albeit a bit "lighter". (And yes I was at those too. No wonder I was such a freak for the Dead, I far as I was concerned they were all like that at the time since I seemed to have stumbled upon some good ones. Still, they made the odds almost unbeatable around this time.)

Well, there's my first five star rating. I'll have to figure out how to rate them fairly, but this one is easy.

This is it. Want to experience an awesome latter day Grateful Dead show? The band (and audience) is amped and on fire.

Every song is inspired and spirited. This matrix captures the great SBD Mix and the great AUD crowd.

Even if you prefer the old days of the Dead, you got to admit this is good stuff.
Reviewer: bomberman - favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite - May 22, 2010
Subject: Very nice
I must say that even though I tend to prefer the earlier days of the band, this show does boil over with energy. Love the way the crowd erupts with first verse of Loose Lucy. Great show, excellent Matrix mix, who could ask for anything more! 5 Stars for this one.

Neat to have a pristine sound board recording with the heavy taper pit crowd noise on top of it. I guess we'll use this innovation as we attempt to explain this experience to our children.

Nicely recorded and great song selection
Have fun!

Subject: What a run at Cap Centre
I was there for all three shows (where's the 15th...Happy Birthday Phil). I was so psyched to see the Dead in my backyard. I was talking with a head before the show and he asked me what I expected. I told him that I'd read on the Terrapin Station BBS (remember that?) that they'd been soundchecking with Loose Lucy. He scoffed and said "They'll never play that again". After Jerry stepped up to the mike and started singing the verse, he went nuts and said "Dude, you called it". We were all jumping around and going crazy. These shoes were fantastic. High Times was there and published a story and photos of these shows. And yes, the Let It Grow is on Without A Net. A friend of mine and I remarked at the show how excellent it was. After listening to the bootlegs for several month, I heard the CD release, and I thought it sounded familiar. Good times in Landover. Damn, I miss the Dead.
